My husband says the date on the jug is the last selling date. When I was a private cook we never used it past that date. Well, I am in the mood for mac'n'cheese and our milk is dated November 27th. Now I would just do a quick sniff test, but seeing that I am pregnant the smell could make me blow chunks...

sniff test or taste test is the only way.

the date on it is the sell by date. Just for information, there's some milk dated 11/26 in my fridge that I wouldn't drink if you paid me. It's all subjective I guess.

How long after purchase will milk keep in the refrigerator?

The shelf life of milk is affected by several factors including how the product was handled before it reaches the consumer. When stored at 40 degrees Fahrenheit and not left unrefrigerated for extended periods, it should last approximately 7 days past the sell-by date on the container.

have your husband take a sip.

if he doesn't spit it out, it's good to cook with.
